Panasonic Eco Solutions North America will provide comprehensive renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions to corporate and public sector organizations from the planning and engineering stages through implementation, construction and permanent financing, as well as ongoing system maintenance.Among Panasonic's accomplishments in the field is a major renewable energy installation at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA, which uses more than 1600 Panasonic HIT solar panels and related technologies. The high-efficiency solar panels cover 41-percent of the track's energy usage, making Infineon one of the world's most energy-efficient raceways.
